Henry Cavill Cast As Superman in the reboot version


The moment many have been waiting for, Warner Bros. has announced who will play the Man of Steel in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot. British actor Henry Cavill has been cast to portray Clark Kent/Superman for the Legendary Pictures production.

Cavill was apparently the front runner but a decision hadn’t been made up until now. Cavill just finished The Cold Light of Day and will also star in this Fall’s Immortals, directed by Tarsem Sing. Cavill also starred in Showtimes The Tudors television series.

For those concerned that a British actor is playing Superman, don’t forget that Christian Bale is also British. What might not be well known is according to Deadline, Cavill also auditioned to play the Dark Knight and was also a contender for James Bond (but was said to be too young at the time).

Cavill will now have to practice wearing the familiar red and blue tights with the movie being targeted for a December 2012 release.
